The music scene from Garden State but it's Wesley Willis

2 Shares

Remember that movie Garden State? With Zach Braff? And there's that now-iconic scene where Natalie Portman's character hands him a pair of headphones and says, "You gotta hear this one song, it'll change your life," and that's how The Shins got famous? — Read the rest

Yale history professor Timothy Snyder predicts the horrific aftermath of a Trump coup in 2024

1 Share

If Trump runs in 2024, he will lose the popular vote. If corrupt GOP state legislators install Trump as President, the United States will quickly and catastrophically cease to exist. That's what Yale history professor Timothy Snyder says in the latest issue of his "Thinking About" newsletter. — Read the rest

Britney Spears' "Toxic" in the style of the B-52s

1 Comment

This time last year, I shared a hilarious tribute album by the B-69s, a tribute band that covers other artists' songs in the style of the B-52s. Welp, now they're back with an equally absurd follow-up titled "Non Funkable Token'," which includes covers of Britney Spears' "Toxic" and "Call Me By Your Name" by Lil Nas X. — Read the rest

The Walk of Life Hypothesis

2 Comments

The Walk of Life Project has set out to prove a simple hypothesis: Walk of Life by Dire Straits is the perfect song to end any movie. Like There Will Be Blood:

Or Dr. Strangelove:

Or Terminator 2:

Case closed, I think! (via fave 5)

RSS Box creates the feeds missing on popular platforms

1 Comment and 4 Shares

RSS Box generates the "missing" feeds for Twitter accounts, YouTube channels, Instagram users, and various other sites that fail to offer RSS.

This website lets you subscribe to RSS feeds for websites that do not support RSS themselves, by using the respective website's API and then translating that data to RSS feeds.

If you get a page saying "Application error", simply try again. This website resolves shortlink URLs to give the reader a better experience, and embeds linked content directly into the RSS feed. You will get this error if this takes longer than the web server allows.

Some websites, like YouTube, support RSS feeds but they are quite hard to find, so this website will provide the URL.

Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera — 12 MP Sensor and Interchangeable Lenses

5 Comments

Les Pounder, writing for Tom’s Hardware:

The Raspberry Pi Camera Module is one of those add ons that we love to play with. Creating images and videos using a $35 Raspberry Pi in real time is still mind blowing for most. You can even use your Raspberry Pi as a PC webcam. But the two previous first-party camera modules have suffered with a fixed focus, albeit good quality, lens and fragile construction.

Enter the Raspberry Pi High Quality Camera, a new module that ups the image quality with a new 12-MP sensor and supports interchangeable lenses and tripod-mounting. The module is larger and, at $50 without any of the required lenses, quite a bit more expensive than prior models, but the increased resolution and flexibility make it a great choice for photography-intensive projects.

With so much of the computer industry moving away from hobbyist tinkering, Raspberry Pi is a delightful exception. I don’t know what I’d do with this but I want to do something.

My thesis uses a few dozen Raspberry PI cameras. I'm going to be showing it off in two weeks but if you want to take a peek it's at https://comfortmaps.com.

I have lots of book scanner ideas. Pity it was sold out instantly. Hopefully I can get a couple some time in the next few months.

I keep hoping they will really jump in resolution. 20MP or higher cameras would be amazing.
